Farmhouse Ceiling Fan Buying Guide

Here are some of the factors you need to consider when buying a farmhouse-style ceiling fan.

Motor

Some ceiling fans are equipped with alternating current motors, while others come with direct current motors. If you have an old ceiling fan at home, then it is probably equipped with an alternating current or AC motor. AC motor ceiling fans are typically cheaper, but the downside is that they have fewer speed setting options compared with fans with DC motor. 

Ceiling fans with direct current or DC motor have become more popular over the years. DC motors are lightweight and smaller than most AC motors. They are also more energy-efficient, making them cheaper in the long run. Some ceiling fans with DC motors have speed settings that can go up to 6 or 7.  

Blade Pitch

A ceiling fan’s blade pitch simply refers to the blades’ angle. Fans with a 12° blade pitch produce a gentler, smoother air circulation. They also consume less energy compared to fans with 13° or 24° blade pitches.

Most ceiling fans on the market have 13° to 15° blade pitches. But if you want a fan that produces maximum airflow, then check out the ceiling fans with blade pitches between 16° and 25°. 

Blade Span

Ceiling fans are available in different blade sizes. Some fans have blade spans that are as small as 36″ or less, while others have blades that span anywhere between 37″ and 45″. Ceiling fans with blades that span from 46″ to 50″ will do well in mid-sized rooms. But if you have a large sunroom or living room, or you have a dining room with cathedral ceilings, then you might want to choose ceilings fans with blades span 51″ and beyond.

Number of Blades

Most ceiling fans on the market typically have three to five blades. These fans are pleasing to look at thanks to their symmetrical blades. Because they have fewer blades and are therefore lighter, drag is kept to a minimum, and airflow is maximized. You can also choose a ceiling fan with six to eight blades, but keep in mind that the blades are designed to be slimmer to make sure that it is lightweight and to minimize drag.

Mounting Options

There are several ways you can mount a fan to a ceiling. As the name implies, flush mount or hugger ceiling fans are mounted flush to the ceiling, and this design makes them ideal for homes with lower ceilings. If you live in a smaller home, such as a condo or an apartment, then this type of ceiling fan will work well in your space.

What if your ceiling is higher than 8′, but you still want the fan to be mounted closer to the ceiling? Then a low profile ceiling fan is ideal for your living space. This type of ceiling fan features a downrod that extends three to five inches from the ceiling, making it ideal for homes with slightly higher ceilings.

But if your home has higher ceilings, then ceiling fans attached to longer downrods might be a good option for you. Always check the room’s floor-to-ceiling height to see if it can accommodate your chosen ceiling fan.

Some ceiling fans are also designed to be compatible with sloped ceilings. If you have an inclined ceiling, then check if your chosen ceiling fan features an angled mount. You can always purchase a separate fan mount adapter for easier installation.

Control Types

Older ceiling fans were controlled by pulling a chain that dangles at the center of the unit. But this can be a hassle if you’re shorter than the average homeowner or if your home’s ceiling is higher or if you have mobility problems. Ceiling fans activated using a pull chain are still popular, but many fans can now be accessed using a wall control or a handheld remote. Some handheld remotes also double as wall controls, while some of the newest fans on the market can be accessed via an app and are compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa.

Outdoor Ceiling Fans

If you’re planning to install the fan in your patio or porch, then make sure to check if the ceiling fan is suitable for an outdoor setting. A good way to know if your chosen ceiling fan is safe for outdoor use is to check its UL rating.

Damp-rated fans are ideal for porches and large terraces, but make sure that they are mounted in areas where rain or snow will not reach them. But if you want it installed on a patio or if you live in areas with high rainfall, then choose a wet-rated ceiling fan.
